About me

I have been practicing law in Rhode Island for more than 23 years, concentrating my work in helping people obtain relief from their bill, saving their homes from foreclosure, and helping people get their life back on track. If you are tired of not being able to meet your financial needs and having bill collectors calling endlessly I can help you find a solution. I have helped many, many Rhode Islanders and Massachusetts residents from all walks of life reduce of eliminate credit card bills, medical bills, keep their cars and stay in their houses. Whatever situation you are in I have probably dealt with it dozens of times. Don't let the black could of overdue bills remain any longer, get a fresh start!


I help residents in all Rhode Island communities including Providence, Warwick, Cranston, East Greenwich, Pawtucket, Lincoln, North Kingstown and Coventy deal with debt collectors by filing for Chapter 7 protection. Once you start working with me I will talking to the debt collects not you. You can feel free to send me an email or call if you have questions you would like to ask. All conversations are confidential and private.
